Application Deadline: McKinsey Advanced Degree Associate Deadline


Tuesday, June 15, 2021 (All day)



PhD, Postdoc and JD/MD Candidates: Apply Here

"We are excited to share that we have many full time opportunities for advanced degree students! If you are pursuing a PhD, Postdoc, JD or medical residency or fellowship and anticipate completing your program later this year through September 2022 (or 2023 for MDs), we encourage you to apply for the Associate role by June 15th for interviews later this summer and early fall.

You'll work in teams of typically 3 - 5 consultants, playing an active role in all aspects of client engagement.

This includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing and communicating recommendations. You'll also have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations in collaboration with client team members.

Associates receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues on their teams. This support includes a Partner from your local office or practice assigned to you to help guide your career as well as up to five weeks of formal training in your first two years as an Associate. Additionally, you'll receive guidance and support from your local office or practice in the selection of client projects, helping you to develop your skills and build your network.

While all consultants develop specialized knowledge and a focused program as they progress with McKinsey, most are initially very broad in their focus, meaning they do not need specific industry or functional expertise to be successful. For consultants who join McKinsey as experienced professionals, this can mean building on previous knowledge or developing unique experience in an area that is completely new.

For all Associates, you will likely intersect with many elements of our firm's work including Digital, Analytics, Implementation - either by collaborating on teams or working with colleagues from these groups."
